    Default Are these wheels refurb'able-and how much?

    Folks,

    Got my eye on some cheap GSI wheels, but they are in a bit of a state.

    Have a look below.

    Are these refurable?
    If so, what cost per wheel am I looking at?
    Would there be any long term/structural damage from the heavy kurb damage?











    Thanks.

    Yep, I've seen a lot worse. Standard rate is around £40+vat per wheel.

    (as long as there are no cracks - these can be repaired too, but down to personal choice as to whether you'd trust them)

    If Im looking at £40+vat per wheels, they aitn worth it then.....thats £120. +VAT before even tryes, + the cost of the wheels to start with.

    Can anyone recommend somewhere in the Glasgow / Kirkintilloch / Falkirk area to have alloy wheels inspected for damage?

    Yep, they'd need to be virtually giving them away to be worthwhile imo...

    You could do them your self otherwise you gotta weigh up the cost of refurbing to buying new wheels. If you are buying them like that you do not want to be paying much for them £10 a wheel tops

    Time is what I dont have. Patience is a with me.

    The price you lot have quotes is about right, but at the end of the day they are GSI wheels so doubt I would get them for that!
